    Day 1. Sort of.


    B: orange juice. (yeah, wasn't hungry after a very primal dinner last night) But I see that 1 cp had over 27 grms of carbs. Won't be doing that again for a while.

    S: 1/2 cup plain whole fat yogurt w/about half cup straw, black and blue berries

    L: Big ass salad w/spinach, cranberries, ham & turkey. 1 boiled egg and Balsamic Vinegar. Oh and goat cheese!

    D: supposed to be trout but well, I am not hungry.


    I stuck the 'sort of' phrase up there because prob 10 days ago I started making major changes to what I ate. With the exception of a couple of slips, I've not had much in the way of grains/processed foods. With that, the biggest thing I've noticed is that I'm not hungry in the evenings. OR mornings. Quite by accident, I did a fast for almost 26 hrs late last week because the hunger simply was not there. Others have experienced this as I've read so wasn't worried too much. I am also learning to discern between boredom and hunger. That's a big challenge for me.


    My goal is to lose about 60lbs. I am 5'4" and about 210. And female that had a hysterectomy a couple of yrs ago. So, no hormones to assist with this process. Anyone out there that's been 'fixed' going thru the primal diet? Luck? Problems?


    I am currently healing from some soft tissue injuries in various parts of my body. I am hoping a diet change will help that healing process before softball starts again in March.


    Am using Fitday.com to track carbs, protein and fat. And calories. Though, it looks like I need to make myself eat a breakfast...so far today I am only hitting about 900 calories.


    Hi! Wish me luck!

    Oops and Oh boy.


    B: 2 eggs w/spicy muenster, 1 pc pork sausage, 1/2 avacodo

    S: 1/2 cup yogurt with fresh mixed berries.

    L: 2 pcs of pizza & 1 pc of cheesecake.

    D: prob none as I will still feel like crap from my overeating/binging lunch.


    Day 1 went really well. Wasn't hungry when I got home so no dinner...

    Checked my caloric intake and it's well under 1000. No bueno.

    So, today. I made sure and had a great breakfast round 0630. Didn't get hungry till around 1:30 or so, then at my yogurt w/berries.

    But, well, was still hungry. Or bored. Not sure. But, I at 2 pcs of pizza and a pc of cheesecake.

    Now I feel like crap. And Fitday just yelled at me for going way over my carb intake.


    Sigh.


    Tomorrow. STarting again.


    yesterday's intake:

    Fat: 46.7 grms

    carbs: 54.5

    protein: 89.2

    alcohol: 15 < red wine.

    Ok, typing in here what I&#39;m eating is getting a bit tedious. Lol. Lazy much? Why yes I am.


    But today&#39;s a new day, right?


    Yesterday&#39;s totals are....

    Fat: 114 carbs: 136 protein: 114


    I know that&#39;s all backwards. Today will be better.


    B: 2 eggs w/spicy muenster, 1/3 kiwi, 2 orange slices.

    S: yogurt w/berries. (yes, I love this and never tire of it)

    L: big salad that I didn&#39;t eat from yesterday. Boo hiss....


    Not even gonna get into how I feel today. Body is still processing all that crap from yesterday.


    Need exercise. Tomorrow, yes!

    Hey, remember me? I&#39;m back & worse than ever. Fallen off and been run over by a couple of wagons.

    But yesterday, the kid wanted to weigh himself on one of those .25 machines at the store. So he did...He&#39;s a whopping 53lbs now! Lol.

    Then it was my turn.

    I did not let him see. I didn&#39;t even want to look. But when I did, it was 215. That&#39;s about 5 more than I&#39;ve ever weighed before.

    So what did I do? What any normal fat person would when given such news, I went and had beer and bbq. And spent a restless night tossing and turning.

    Tomorrow is Monday. Yes, I know, &#39;Tomorrow is a disease&#39;. But it&#39;s the best I can do right now.

    I don&#39;t want to be 40 and fat. I want to be 40 and running circles around those younger than me.

    Monday, new 31 day challenge right here. Bring it!

    Major big progress...for me at least.

    I made it to the gym by 0500 this morning. Did a &#39;slow&#39; warm up ride for 10 mins. Then performed a variety of pulling/pushing on the free weights for about 30. Feels good. When I got home, I took 2 out of our 3 dogs for a brief, slow walk.

    Had a great breakfast of 2 fried eggs, old fashioned pork sausage, an avocado and a couple cups of coffee. Black.

    I want to do this. I will do this.

    Happy Monday!

    Thanks, DCK! I&#39;m trying...


    Did pretty good yesterday till dinner. SO decided we needed to go out to eat at a seafood restaurant. That wouldn&#39;t be so bad except for the 2 glasses of wine and key lime cheesecake and the 1 sourdough roll! I just couldn&#39;t resist...

    So, my breakdown yesterday was off the charts

    Calories 2,375

    Fat 120.9gm calories:1,053

    Carbohydrate 146.1gm calories: 561

    Protein 105.7gm calories: 427

    Alcohol 47.2 calories327


    Take out the cheesecake & this wouldn&#39;t look quite so bad...!


    I did make myself get up and walk the dogs this morning. Nice slow walk for about an hour. They are teenage dogs and hence a lot of start/stopping trying to teach them to not pull on the leash.


    Tomorrow is 30 mins more of pushing, pulling heavy things. I can do this. Early to bed tonight. Because I still feel so full from that gargantuan meal last night, I am just sipping on hot peppermint tea this morning. Wonder when, if I&#39;ll get hungry or if this&#39;ll be an impromptu IF?

    Hmm...

    Good shrimp & steak last night...mmmm

    Here we go again...

    This time with feeling! Nothing more than feeling!


    Did my push/pulling drills today to the tune of about 30 mins. Wasn&#39;t bad but it was at 0500 and that was EARLY! (But, I was able to get the SO out of bed & into the gym as well!)


    B: 2 eggs, 2 sausage patties, half oz spicy muenster, 4 strawberries

    L: BAS!! with walnuts & salmon to top it off.


    We&#39;ll see if I&#39;m hungry after that.


    I am feeling a bit light headed/imbalanced today. Wonder if it&#39;s the almost 0 sugar in my meals? Probably. Have read about it in other journals on here and seen it mentioned in the forum. I can tough this out but it&#39;s a bit disorientating.


    Not giving up. Not giving up~!!

    The light headed-ness has cleared up today. YAH!

    Got my 30 min slow bike ride in at the gym today. Sorry, but it&#39;s too cold to do it outside right now!


    D: (last night) 6 oz grilled chicken with lump crab meat! Delicious! 1 glass merlot yeah, I know.


    B: IF&#39;ing today

    L: (late) BAS w/6 oz of salmon and some berries. Less than 2 oz altogether


    Stepped on the scale this morning and it registered 209.5. Not sure if the scale last week was right or not. Thinking not as I don&#39;t feel any difference in my clothes.


    j. k. livin&#39;!
